Mini PCI Cards

Hi

Does anybody know whether there are different sizes / types of Mini PCI cards?

I have purchased an Intel PRO BG Mini PCI card, with the intention of installing it in my Dell Latitude c400, so that I could get rid of the protruding PCMCIA card which I currently use for wireless connectivity. The problem I have encountered is that the card does not seem to fit. I have removed the plastic cover from the base of the laptop, and have revealed the 56k modem, and a slot similar to a PCI slot, only shorter. This is what I am assuming is the Mini PCI slot (unless I am looking in the wrong place?) but the card doesn't fit, it is not as long as the slot...

Any idea's ?

Cheers

The only thing i can think of is that some cards are low profile to fit into smaller boards / cases but it should say low profile clearly on the packaging if this is the case

sorry cant be any more help than that
